In the past few days, Github implemented a way to personalize our profile pages: Profile README. And it's amazing since we can now add a full description of ourselves and also mention which projects and studies we are focusing on, for example.
In this article, I'll highlight some creative examples and show you how you can create your own Profile README. 😎
README files typically include information about the project and each repository should have one. What the project does, how users can use the project and how to contribute to the project are some good content from READMEs.
But this new GitHub feature called Profile README can be used to inform people of more information about ourselves. It also supports markdown, which means that we can play a lot with HTML, gif, emoji... Read this GitHub article and Master Markdown.
Feel free to check out my GitHub profile. And below you can see a list of awesome repositories of examples of READMEs:
You can do this through the following steps:
This repository needs to be public and initialized with a README.
2- Edit README.md file with a customized content about you.
3- Go to you profile page to see the changes.
You can now see a new section at the top of the page that was automatically rendered from the new Profile README file.
You can also learn how to build a self-updating profile ✨.

I'm very excited about this GitHub release. How about you? Have you already changed your profile page?
